Sufjan Stevens – Alphabet Street & Good King Wenceslas

Two new cuts from the forthcoming Silver & Gold Christmas records that I may or may not have spent near $200 on last month (SPOILER: I did). The new tracks are inspiring me to think that it may have been a great decision after a slight scare with Mr Frosty Man. The video was excellent but the song was, you know, alright or whatever. Good King Wenceslas is straight out of the Age of Adz songbook while Alphabet St is a cover of the Prince original. Both are crazy cosmic. Sort of bizarre that at the end of Good King Wenceslas he takes up an ‘Alphabet Street’ chant although by this stage you’d think there was little that old man Stevens could do to surprise me. Play the two in quick succession as there’s a really lovely transition. You can download the both of them via soundcloud (for free) or you can wait another nine days and get the full 58 tracks for a mere $15.
